Anderson went undrafted our of Temple where he developed himself as the New York Jets’ top receiver in four seasons. He recorded 3,059 yards and 20 touchdowns in four years with the Jets.
Anderson becomes the second Temple player to join the Panthers after quarterback PJ Walker signed with the team on Monday. Both players played under coach Rhule at Temple in 2015.
The impact on Anderson on the Panthers
Carolina is in need of good wide receivers on the team. The Panthers added Seth Roberts and Pharoh Cooper this offseason to the receiving core. Added the fact that D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel are young, but experienced on the team, the receiving core is a solid group.
The team is in need of weapons on offense and have added a key piece with Anderson. Teddy Bridgewater is now running the offense at quarterback. He should have plenty of receivers to throw it to in the offense. Anderson is a deep threat who can make big plays in the passing game. He should be able to help the offense in the passing game and help Bridgewater in his first season.
